The beauty of Venezuela is not only limited to its charming cities, or its exotic jungles, or its turquoise Caribbean Sea ebbing on white-sand beaches. Venezuela is also famous for having some of the most beautiful women in the world.
The extraordinary beauty of Venezuelan women is attributed to the multiracial ethnicity that prevails in the country. Their perfect European facial features, combined with sensuous Latin curves, all wrapped up in a golden Afro-Caribbean skin tone is a beauty package to be reckoned with. If most women looked like Venezuelan women. And that is the reason why every other Miss Universe, Miss World, or Miss you-name-it pageant is won by a Venezuelan beauty.
But it goes beyond physical beauty. Today's beauty pageants take the contestants' intellectual capacity very seriously. We could be talking about the most beautiful woman in the world, but is she comes off dumb when she opens her mouth, she might as well pack up her things and go home. And Venezuelan women always come out as smart, thoughtful contestants when they speak.
The Venezuelan beauties we see on TV year in and year out are the result of years of polishing by that countries top professional experts. The girls are taught -- from a very early age -- how to cat walk, how to conduct themselves in public or in front of a camera, how to stand, how to moderate their voices, how to smile, how to laugh, how to dance, how to speak English, and how to pose for a sexy photo shoot wearing nothing but a skimpy bathing suit.
As far as plastic surgery is concerned, it is mainly limited to touching up the nose and the knees, as none of the girls are currently undergoing breast surgery to avoid drawing criticism from abroad. However, they do get dental treatments, and follow strict orders from dietitians, cosmeticians, and dermatologists.
The beauty of Venezuelan women is fresh, elegant, sensuous and spontaneous. Somehow they have a glow of their own -- an inside light that shines through and seduces the pageant judges and the public alike. It takes a very beautiful and self assured pageant competitor to be able to stand next to a Venezuelan contestant without looking too pale, or too tall, or too short, or just too....bland.
Venezuela is a country that exudes beauty: the beauty of the land combined with the beauty of its people.
